Default Vegas handlebar swap.

Anyone change the bars on their Vegas. I have a 07 8-ball and want some sort of drag bars for it. Aftermarket still sucks for Victory so have any of you guys done anything yet? I was thinking of flybars. I'm 6'4'' so I don't reallyneed much pullback. Let me know what you've done and should I tackle the change myself. I'm mechanically capable but never done too much work on bikes, never messed with a throttle.

Check out this setup - might be what you're looking for!

As far as making the swap goes, you don't have to disassemble your throttle to install new bars - just loosen the housing, slide the whole assembly off your stock bars and onto the new ones, re-torque and you should be good to go.

Let me know how they turn out, i have been completely happy with mine. if you are getting them powder coated, it may take a little longer. he custom made mine and the powder coater comapny he uses waits until they get enough parts to fill the oven, so it took a little longer than expected for me to get mine.

kwdunlap: I haven't been on in awhile to check things out but could you e-mail me pictures ofyour bars as well? I think I'm going to order the same ones this winter and maybe I'll just e-mail your pictures to them to make sure I get the same ones.

Thanks. [email protected]

Ohh by the way, did any of you guys have to change any cables or wires with the new bars? How about with running the wires inside?
